elegant and robust white wine, COLOUR yellow with greenish hues to light yellow, NOSE fruity with scents of peach and green apple, TASTE dry, robust, long finish, fresh
An elegant frame and fine consistency, with intense fruity notes. An excellent structure that is flavoursome and mineral, with a persistent palate. We recommend serving this wine with refined dishes, including meats.
Pale straw yellow with green highlights. Fresh, lively and owerflowing with tropical aromas such as pineapple, passionfruit and mango. The fresh, mouthfilling flavours are backed by a fine acidity giving it length and perfect balance. This wine is an excellent accompainment to asparagus, seafood and warm starters.
An intensive white wine - not just in colour, but in fragrance and taste. The secret of this white wine lies in the special features of the area in which it is cultivated: Lahn in Appiano. These vineyards only produce a small yield, yet what they produce is typified by sustained character and quality. Its delicious and strong aromas, reminiscent of elderberry and honey, leave behind an abundance of lingering sensations on the palate. This wine, served straight the cellar, makes a huge impression even when served young: a long maturing process in the bottle, however, enhances its density and its complexity.
